3:00am
you leave without talking tonight. you've been quiet and shy, but thank you for being with us. >> thank you. i thought it's ridiculous they posted my name and address, why about the people arrested with illegal guns and-- >> we don't know those. think about that, people that didn't go through the year long process and took about a year for all of you-- >>, but that-- >> and on a map. >> what the right to privacy. >> the worst thing we're going to see right now, as a legislator, your i disagree with mr. gold on this, you're going to see bills from the senate and assembly that are going to protect us in this manner, but they're going to be coupled with gun control laws that are going to be hideous to us, that are going to be absolute-- come as a package and that's the way that it's going to get passed. >> sean: we're out of time. give you all-- give yourselves a big hand. thank you all for coming. [applause]. and i really appreciate it, thank you all.
3:01am
that's all the time we have left for this week. let not your heart be troubled. we'll be back on monday and i hope you have a great weekend. >> >> good morning, it's saturday, january 12th. i'm alisyn camerota. thanks for joining us so early. the white house is getting pressed on the hill to do just that the latest on the gun control battle for you. >> this picture may be worth more than a thousand worlds. while kate middleton's portrait is causing worldwide mayhem. >> what would you do if an invisible driver placed an order at a drive through. >> are you serious? >> you are going to meet the prankster behind that viral video. yeah, he joins us live. "fox & friends" for a saturday morning starts right now.
3:02am
that's better than any prank call anybody hassed ever made. >> alisyn is is here with two sphrang men. >> tucker carlson and mike jerrick. >> how do they do that by the way. >> i don't know. >> he is dressed as a car seat. i want to know how he is did that is he behind the wheel. is he creed as a car seat. >> you could dress as our curvey couch. >> have to be a lot more uncomfortable to pull that off. vice president joe biden meeting with members of the video game industry to talk about how to prevent tragedies at sandy hook elementary. >> i have never shocked consciousness of the american
3:03am
people like 6 and 7-year-old students being riddled in the classroom. >> peter has more on the gun control talks. >> senator barbara boxer from california told the "the washington post" yesterday if school districts want to have a police presence they should be able to and those officers could be in june form or under cover. thee seemed to suggest the funding for those armed guards could come from the federal government. senator boxer has been a part of the gun violence task force. vice president biden is is leading. yesterday, the vice president explained that it isn't just schools. the government is is worried about. >> we have a problem beyond, quote, the massacres, the columbines through the auroras to connecticut. there are 10,000 people a year gunned down in our cities. different motives, different
3:04am
reasons, different explanations. but, you know, it's a real problem. >> putting an armed guard in every school was something the national rifle association pushed for in the days after the mass murder in sandy hook, connecticut. that idea was publicly mall lined by many lawmakers pushing for more comprehensive reforms. the nra was invited vice president and others. they left with a bad taste in their mouth saying afterwards, quote: we were disappointed with how little this meeting had to do with keeping our children safe and how much it had to do with an agenda to attack the second amendment. while claiming that know proposal proposals would be prejudged, this task force spent most of its time on proposed restrictions on lawful firearms owners honest tax paying hard working americans. so, money for armed guards in some schools is something being floated. in three days we should know for sure what the federal government's initial plan is because vice president biden
3:05am
has promised his bought boss, president obama to give him his tax forces recommendations by tuesday. back to you in new york. >> it's funny that the nar came out of the meetings with such a bad taste in their mouth given that now senator barbara boxer peter was just talking about. had said that vice president biden seems very open to wane lapierre's main point during his talk about that armed guards should be in every school. the vice president isn't considering it for every school. barbara boxer said it would be whatever school wants armed guards. that seems like a point of common ground that they could come together on. >> think about what the head of the nra wayne lapierre said after the newtown shooting. you go after a bad guy with a good guy with a gun. this is what he said. >> the only way to stop a monster from killing our kids is to be personally involved and invested in a plan of
3:06am
absolute protection. the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. why is the idea of a gun good when it is used to protect the president of our country or our police but bad when it is used to protect our children in our schools. they are our kids. they are our responsibility. and it's not just our duty to protect them. it's our right to protect them. >> boy, was he immediately ripped by just about everybody for saying that. on tuesday, tucker, it may be part of the vice president's recommendation. >> it will be interesting to see if biden's suggestion is treated the same way lapierre's suggestion was. it probably shouldn't be too advising. keep in mind this is in some sense a big government solution. >> yeah. >> let's hire more union members and put them in
3:07am
government schools. >> these will be federal dollars federally paidnot local. >> it would be. it does seem fair to assess policies on their merits. if you were opposed to it when the nra suggested it you ought to be now. >> was wayne -- says the federal government should hire these guards or not? >> his point was more guns, less crime. actually he has the ubs on his side on this. >> over the past 20 years the murder rate in this country is down by 50%. half. the number of guns we believe in private hands in this country has about doubled. so, you could make a case that the trend lines are pretty clear. >> in the two decades, 1992 to 2012. u.s. violent crime was down 49%. the u.s. murder rate down 49%. excellent trend. excellent number. >> look at the number. >> firearms rupp. but you also have to add to this the fact that the president -- the vice president touched on this. we are still the most violent
3:08am
nation in terms of gun violence and in terms of who is killed by guns. the 16 wealthiest industrialized nations we lead the charge with that dubious distinction of the most people killed by guns. good trend line but not the best. in terms of countries that are similar though not our size. >> this is a much safer country than a lot of places i have been. those statistics may claim that the truth is you would rather live in washington or johannes burg. >> i remember in the '80s when we were in washington it was the murder capitol of the country. washington, d.c. things have definitely improved. >> it is not because of gun control. of course the assault weapons ban has expired. wayne lapierre got nut of it when he said why is it okay for the president's congressional body guards. a lot of body guards protecting our public servants to have these firearms. this ammunition but not the average fern to protect his family with the same guns.
3:09am
>> he made the point there are armed guards at malls, there are armed guards at airports. why wouldn't we our most precious resource our children, why wouldn't we have armed guards at schools? why is that off base? >> yeah. why not just try it for a while? do you know what i mean? it's dog something. united kingdom still has violence there. what is the reason for all the violence? should would he be talking the video game industry like we did yesterday? >> i think it's worth considering. you would hope this conversation is driven by data. >> you often here the left accuse the right of ignoring social science on this question. does gun control reduce violence? i have never seen any evidence that it does. we ought to let the numbers guide our policy making decisions it it seems to me. >> we will see what happens on tuesday. very thought-provoking plan. obviously it will be coming out. headlines and see what else is happening. new overnight the flu outbreak. 47 states slammed with the
3:10am
virus. there is word that it may have peaked. some words that saw the earliest outbreaks are now reporting the number of cases going down. the season is not over yet. the big push to get the vaccine concerns over shortages remain today. >> you may have to call around to a place or two to get it a lot of the doctors who ordered vaccines or clinics who ordered vaccines did so and gave a lot out in the fall. >> still the cdc says the. >> i -- two month delay in the arraignment of the dark night shooter loads to outburst in court. gave the shooter until march to enter a plea. that caused the father of one of the victims to scream at the shooter. he said, quote: rot in hell. the man was escorted out of the courtroom. james homes is accused of opening fire at aurora colorado fire killing 12 people and injuring 70 other. president obama says is he speeding up the transition in afghanistan.
3:11am
the president making announcement after meeting with harmid karzai at the white house. >> let me say this as plainly as i can starting this spring, our troops will have a different mission. training, advising. assisting afghan forces. >> in their support role coalition force also leave afghan villages and control of detention centers handed over. still unanswered how many troops will stay behind after the war ends in 2014. >> the numbers are not going to make a difference to the situation in afghanistan. it's the draw of the relationship that will make the afghanistan and in the region. the specifics of numbers are issues that the military will decide in afghanistan will have no particular concern. >> this week the white house said it would consider leaving zero troops behind and the
3:12am
president is considering leaving that option on the table. those your headlines. >> it's going to be 50 to 60 degrees in new york. that's not real. >> i know al gore is upset by that but i enjoy it. >> me too. >> it's january. >> is it real, rick? >> really real. the worst parts of it is out across the west is going to be incredibly cold. get out of phoenix might not get out of the 40s. do you like that, mike? >> just trying to response. >> down across the south we have rain again. we had a foot of rain across parts of louisiana. just two days ago. more rain, 3 to 4 inches of flooding concerns here. anywhere in the east you will be a little bit kind of soupy. warm cloudy and humid for this time of year. we also have know across parts of the northern plains. this was a big snow storm that now we still have some blizzard concerns with. very windy conditions across the northern plains. while the know is beginning to taper off. ground blizzard. on the ground blowing around and causing whiteout

better for the economy. >> there is a whole slew of these. about two dozen. people should talk to their accountant about what tax credits are coming on in march. we can't go through all of them. let's talk about the extended tax credits. what are those. >> things set to expire january 1st of this year. with the fiscal cliff negotiation they came back and made more changes. for example, for school teachers they now can qualify for $250 of expenses that they have for their classrooms. for children, you get a thousand dollar tax credit per child up $210,000. you have the private mortgage insurance, which was phased to go out. now you can still for people under water on their home and want to refinance their home or buying for a first time and not putting 20% down, they have the ability to deduct the interest on the private mortgage insurance that they couldn't do before. >> i know also the adoption tax credit got extended which is some people waiting to see if that was going to happen. >> that helps a lot of families. unfortunately not going to be

>> some quick headlines for you this morning. a warning for anyone who owns a pc. a flaw with java software putting millions at risk of getting hacked. hackers could install malicious software making you vulnerable to identity theft. uninstall java until it finds a fix. check this out. volcano in eastern russia. shooting hot ash and lava hundreds of feet in the sky. began erupting in november for the first time in nearly 40 years. scientists have traveled to the base of the volcano to figure out why it started to blow up all of a sudden. school distribution across the country are redesigning curriculums to fit modern standards but there is one right of passage that's being left behind. cursive writing. now one lawmaker in indiana is calling for a vote next week that would mandate cursive in classrooms. but is this a push that's going to be just a waste of time? do we need it anymore? let's ask michael mcshane.
3:25am
he is research fellow american enterprise institute. founder of divalicious moms. i like that. both joining us for fair and balanced debate. do we need cursive anymore? >> i think we probably don't. but what we especially don't need is a law mandating that teach cursive. i have no problem if schools would like to teach their students cursive. but i think this is a case of some legislative micromanagement. what legislators should be doing is get out of of the way of teachers and principles to meet the needs of students. infrastructure not bourbonning them with regulation and programs that seem like a good idea at the time. >> do you see a list that our new treasury secretary jack lew: he has made it pretty big in his life do. we need cursive. >> we still need cursive. we need cursive handwriting because a child when they learn to write and they learn to write cursive they are putting their hands -- the pen to the paper. they are learning how to
3:26am
really truly use their brain, their fine motor skills. skills that can't be taught by just using a computer today. skills is that can't be taught by just using technology. skills that can't just be toss taught. taught when they're learned. teach them in school young age. skills that we really still need to do today. >> do we need a bill demanding that we do this? >> well, i think it is important that somebody takes a stand and says we need to enforce this in our schools because it does need to get done. there is somebody out there that is saying that it is important still for us to have and be teaching this in school for our children. >> i remember all those hours, michael that the nuns where i was growing up, you had to practice in them lines too. we need a law, michael? >> no. we are going to lose it if we don't have the bill. >> that's a possibility.
3:27am
i bet in the 60's and 70s slide rules. we can't have calculator come in classrooms. big difference between saying that some schools should teach cursive and mandating that every school has to. >> how would you respond to that? >> i would respond by saying i think all schools should be teaching cursive. is an important tool to be learned. whether or not people think that all the kids are going to be using technology and their computers that's great down the road. early age important skill to learn. fine motor skills. hand to the pen to the pencil to the paper your brain. these are skills that we can't teach our children? >> where are we going to be in 20 years if we don't have cursive? >> we will be in a a world where children are just using computers and hopefully they will still know how to write. i think think it's a very important skill. when i leave a meeting i written a handwritten thank you in my cursive handwriting
3:28am
which is something i know people don't do. people respect that and people love getting a handwritten letter because it shows that you have actually taken time out of your busy day to do something nice and to show that you still. >> michael just texts his thank you now, right, michael? >> yeah, absolutely. >> which is fine but i still there is there is something very very very nice and important about writing a handwritten letter. >> everybody watching, what do you think of that? respond to us? email, fax us, you can't write us. you can text us, i guess. twitter us. thank you both very much. appreciate it? >> thanks for having me. >> this picture may be worth more than a thousand words. why kate middleton's portrait is causing worldwide mayhem. look at her, she looks about 45 years old. how dethat? what would do you if you saw this at a drive-thru? >> i'm a ghost. yeah, i'm a ghost. thank you. >> oh my god.

[ laughter ] >> that is an interesting book. the beauty experiment where she went without makeup for aer i don't. you, i can imagine how naked she must have felt. >> about three weeks ago there is a show called the talk. kind of aview but on the west coast. and they did the entire hour all five women without makeup on. >> oh my. >> what were the ratings like? >> they were good as a matter of fact. because women could really relate to it. but who is the new host of that show? >> judge could really judge them. >> you won't be seeing that experiment on "fox & friends" weekend. look at this. this is kate middleton new official, i guess portrait of her that is coming under a lot of criticism mainly because
3:33am
it's not make her pretty. make her not pretty. >> paul emslie. is he getting a lot of bad publicity on this. >> all of this deserved. this is an offense not just kate middleton but aesthetics i saw it. >> the minute i saw it? >> less interest than the mona lisa. >> it is interesting in that her expression is one that i have never seen her make in real life. >> you have noticed the similarity between him and the portrait of her? it was clearly a self-portrait. you don't need to be freud to get. this this guy is all about him. >> there is this thing called the british art journal and the head of it is a woman named robin simon. her job is to judge art through the england and she said sadly this is one rotten portrait. this guy is just getting ripped. >> it's funny, because i think is he going for a mona lisa

3:35am
>> let us know what you think, please of this photograph if is it suits her if i like it. find on twitter. get to the headlines and tell you what else is happening. including update on this crazy story. poisoned with cyanide after wisconsining the lottery. now the body of khan will be exhumed to reexpect what caused his death and rule out if anything else may have contributed to it. generally one cyanide tablet will do it. his death was initially ruled a result of natural causes but further toxicology exams showed otherwise. police have not announced any suspects in his wife. and his wife has denied involvement. the autopsy will be completed by the end of the week. terrifying ride for passengers on board a commuter bus in seattle after a strange popping noise sent everyone running off. moments later, the bus burst into flames. no one was hurt. the police say that that is thanks in part to the driver quickly getting everyone off

3:39am
next four or five days. back to you inside. >> thanks so much, rick. >> let's talk about what's going on in the academy awards. nominations just announced this week there were some surprises. namely that ben affleck was passed over for director and kathryn bigelow was passed over for director for zero dark 30. that came as a huge surprise. what everybody is saying is that she was passed over not because of lack of skill but because of politics. in fact, some people in the academy are going so far as to say that they will not vote for zero dark 30 because they don't like the politics that this movie, mind you represents one of the voters going to say it in public. you are probably going to get dissed for. this actor in hollywood. i don't want to vote for this movie because they talk about torture in it. waterboarding. >> now, i live in america. he claims to be an actor. i have never seen that guy. >> he was in 30 something, apparently. >> 30 something that was like
3:40am
in the 70s. >> that's the point. a lot of people who make these decisions this is not the united states senate. these are like basically out-of-worked actors with political ageneral does trying to force them on the rest of the country. we should take these decisions with a grain of salt. >> first of all talk about the torture thing is waterboarding really torture? the reason you vote for a picture is the artistic quality of the picture. not the content in it, right? >> you would think. not only that it's a movie. it has said that its based on real events. many movies are it's not a documentary. >> good point. >> it's a movie. will people not like the wizard of oz anymore because they don't like the depiction of little people munchkins in the movies? >> based on close-to-actual events? >> that's the debate. people don't know how close it is. you are allowed to have to take some liberties with movies and to depict movies in hollywood that don't necessarily have to be completely accurate. >> you would think that
3:41am

3:47am
once a day. versus the generation prior to them that said only 3% of parents stay in touch with their own parents daily. what's going on with this new generation? people wanted to look at this positively say listen we have come to a place where there is more connectedness between generations. i don't think what's has he happening. i think what's happening is dependency on parents because these kids haven't been taught autonomy. they are leaning on their parents. it's one thing to want to go on a walk with somebody. another thing not to know how to walk because have you been leaning on someone your whole life. kids relying on social media. who haven't formed real relationships necessarily in their more extended circles who may not be employed because the job market is so severe liqueur tailed for young people. under employed or making $9 an hour when they hoped to make much more. what we have here are
3:48am
dependent kids who we are teaching not to think for themselves. >> it sounds doctor like we also have dependent parents. pretty tough transition for a lot of parents go from spending the bulk of your time to spending the thinking of your children to leaving the necessary nest. shouldn't parents pull back and allowing a role in allowing their children to become autonomous? >> you are absolutely right. no question most forms of unconditional love require facing some kind of pain. right? you send your child to school. you don't really want to in some way, but you do. because you want to create autonomy in your son or your daughter. i think parents do bear some of the responsibility here. but, look, if you have kids who for some reason seem to be gravitating back toward the nest because of depression, anxiety, lack of self-esteem and self-confidence, it's a formula for trouble because a lot of parents want to do what they can for their kids.
3:49am
they are doing too much. and sadly, this is a culture now that teaches narcissism and dependency rather than autonomy. look at the arguments they are going to take away guns, right? and give you marijuana. that's the culture we are living. in where we want to distribute marijuana and take away your firearm because you shouldn't be able to defend yourself. >> dr. ablow, i have to tell you when i pitched this story yesterday in our "fox & friends" story meeting, you know, our conference room is filled with 20 somethings, there is a lot of 20 somethings on our staff. i was met with blank stares around the table. what's the problem with calling home many times a day? in fact, we took a screen grab of one of our 25-year-old staff's cell phones. let me show the number of calls. can you see there and this is a 24 hour period, dad, mom, dad, dad, mom, home, dad, mom. and here is her defense. i say this is not weird to me. technology keeps us in touch between the distance and my
3:50am
work schedule i like being in touch with them. >> yeah. here is what i would tell her and maybe i will do a little curbside consult when i'm in new york and you can point her out. it's not that sill tailgating. it's bleeding you. it's facilitating dependency as all technology does by the way. you are losing your ability to chart your own course in life. similarly her cell phone is doing that theory. if you came to my practice and you told me i'm in touch with my parents four times a day to oget reassurance to compare notes with them, i would say listen, we have a lot of work to do. i wouldn't be kidding. i would say you are somebody who has leaned on your parents and you need to develop more autonomy and i will see you next week for sure. >> all right. we will pass that on to her auto whom shall remain nameless. >> g.p.s. metaphor of charting

4:03am
hi, video game interest. gun experts as well as folks from the entertainment industry. without showing too much of his hand he revealed to us yesterday that the government is at least considering making all new guns like the one james bond uses in the movie sky fall. and if you haven't seen the movie, just listen to this. >> we will be meeting with technology experts because to overstate the case, it would -- a lot could change if, for example, every gun purchased could only be fired by the person who purchased it. because literally would be unable to be fired. that technology exists but it's extremely expensive. but if that were available on every weapon sold, there is significant evidence that would -- may very well have curtailed what happened up in connecticut.
4:04am
>> vice president biden thinks his task force can do a great deal without impinging on the rights guaranteed by the second amendment. but a gun store owner in virginia said many americans are not taking their chances. >> gun sales have gone through the roof. everything anything and everything. people on the fence about buying had planned to buy one were pushed a little harder now because afraid that they are not going to be able to buy certain weapons. so now also scared about the way things are are going. personal protection. get it while you can. >> three days from now, we should have a much better idea about what the vice president's tank force recommends because that's when this biden-led group says they are going to give president obama their report. back to you in new york. >> thanks, peter. of course all this talk is a result of what happened on december the 14th there in newtown, connecticut.
4:05am
shooting at a school. should we have armed guards at all of our schools as the nra wayne lap pier had suggested? >> when he came out and suggested that. he was scoffed at that was their brilliant idea after they had been silenced at the new town shooting. this is all they came one? let's remind you of what wayne lap peer says. >> the only way to stop a monster from killing our kids is to be personally involved and invested in a plan of absolute protection the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is is a good guy with a gun. why is the idea of a gun good when it's used to protect the president of our country or our police but bad when it's
4:06am
used to protect our children in our schools? they are our kids. they are our responsibility. it's not just our duty to protect them. it's our right to protect them. >> now, the reason we want to play that again is to remind you that possibly on tuesday when the vice president comes back to the president with a recommendations for what we do about guns in this country, that may be on the list of recommendations. armed guards and schools. if you were against it when wayne lapierre said it i think you have an obligation to. i think congress will put forth legislation this year that any gun control. any restriction on firearms will apply to the body guards of federal employees. of the president's body guards, executive branch body guards. body guards protecting members of congress. their families are protected by men carrying high capacity magazines of assault rifles. you are not allowed to protect your family using one.
4:07am
why is that? >> a cynic would say people are out to do harm to political figures but now in this country it looks like people are out to do harm to our children. >> they have the power and guarantee their own protection but don't allow to you guarantee yours. >> when wayne lapeer came out with that human cry in the mainstream media they expected a more conciliatory tone from him or some other suggestion. it is fascinating that he came out and he was widely condemned saying would he go should put guns in our school. senator barbara boxer of california says that, in fact, that is something she has suggested to the vice president that he, in fact, seemed very open to it they are talking about using federal dollars to do it. only do it for schools that wanted it. >> wouldn't you feel more comfortable as a parent if there was an armed guard at your parent's school? >> i want to make sure. we know at columbine they were
4:08am
like outside of the school at the moment that the columbine shooter. i want to make sure if it works, if t. makes me feel a lot more comfortable. in the days after new town there were police parked in front of my kid's school and i liked that show of force and it was comforting. >> i wonder what the effect on kids though. i have four children in school and i wonder if say your average 3rd grader needs to be reminded every day he is at risk going to school. >> when you see the guy walk guy with the gun. >> totally honest speaking. most kids go to completely safe schools and never be bothered by it right? making your kids fearful is a potential cost here. >> do you think we are overreacting. >> i'm not saying that i think we could overreact. people tend to. human nature causes overreaction like we overreact sometimes. >> right. some people suggested that for that very reason don't have a uniformed guard. you can have an armed plained clothes policeman. there are many ways to try to figure out how to keep kids
4:09am
safe. tuesday will be fascinating to see what they come up with. meantime get to your headlines and tell you with what else is happening at this hour. flu outbreak has spread to 47 states reaching epidemic levels according to the cdc. we could be at a turning point. some states that saw the earliest outbreaks are reporting that the number of states going down with some people rushing out to get the vac senile. now the concern is not being able to get one. >> you may have to call around to a place or two to get it a lot of the doctors that ordered vaccines or a lot of the clinics that ordered vaccines did so and gave a lot of it out in the fall. >> the cdc says the vaccine is 62% effective. delay dark night shooter leads to outburst in court. gave the shooter until march to enter a pleavment that causes this man the man you are about to see the father of one of the victims to scream at james holmes he said, quote: rot in hell. that man was escorted out of the courtroom. holmes is accused of opening

huckabee now. we want to talk about what will be announced on tuesday with joe biden's task force on trying to combat gun violence. very interesting. we have heard that it would leak out from senator barbara boxer that they may be considering wayne lap peer's proposal widely condemned press conference he had to put armed guards in school. >> if that is in fact what they come up with, maybe i would have to say maybe they are becoming rational after all. a lot of the things they have talked about have been irrational. not that people want to do something. everybody's to do something. it needs to be something that will actually help. for example, when i hear people say universal become ground checks. that sounds really good. but here is a question. what would be in that background check? and that's a real important question to ask. and here is one i would like to pose. if we're going to do a background check so i can go get a box of shotgun shells to go duck hunting why don't we have a background check for people who want to run for president or for that matter senator or congress or
5:07am
governor. i have run for office. i have even run for president. nobody did a background check. i think that frankly would be a good idea. >> background check for universal registration. along as we are applying the same laws to the people who make the laws as to the rest of us. why not make it a law that the body guards who protect the president, executive branch members. members of congress have to abide by the same gun restrictions why should members of congress protect their families with high capacity imagine zens but ordinary people can't protect their families with those? >> one of the comments made about the high capacity is who needs 30 rounds? let me ask this question? who needs a car that can go 100 miles per hour? you can't drive legally 100 miles per hour anywhere in america. who needs that car? nobody? nobody needs a car yet all of our cars would potentially drive that fast if we floored them should we apply the logic things we don't need. if someone can hurt somebody with a gun. they can hurt somebody with a car. can you steal a car.
5:08am
>> body guards who protect the congressional leadership believe they need high capacity magazines. >> have you ever seen and i know you have and i have. seen what the secret service actually carry to protect the president? it's un-know that suburban where those guys sit in the back and all the things that they have. there is some serious weaponry it goes way beyond anything that you can even get with a federal license. >> ronald reagan's attempt on his life in washington, d.c. in the wider shots you see some amazing weapons come out of a man's suit coat. is this for show the whole discussion. nra rating rank a lot of them get an a. anybody against gun control. same people saying the same things. and congress is controlled by republicans so why would things change? >> well, i think you guys have pointed out that essentially the presence of guns were indication of a crime wave, we would be in the worst, most
5:09am
violent murderous period of time. but the crime rates have actually dropped in valve both in murder and overall violent crimes. >> put those numbers up on the screen so that the u.s. violent crime rate is down as you said 49% over the past little under 20 years. whereas the number of firearms owned by private citizens have almost doubled. if there is a direct cause effect relationship how's come it isn't showing up in those numbers. we have lots of laws on the book. 47,000 laws regarding firearms. if we did a better job of enforcing it and stricter and more harsh punishment for people who ever use a firearm in the commission of a crime, that would, i think, do far more than simply passing new laws on people who haven't broken any laws. >> do you think on tuesday we will will hear some sort of exclusion everybody has mentioned that is mental health, stricter mental health
5:10am
background checks or somehow keeping guns out of the hands of deranged people? >> i would hope so. i think we ought to keep a the lo of things out of the hands of deranged people whether it's the ability to gone 00 internet and order explosive material or knives or, you know, some people shouldn't be driving cars either. i go back to the carmen tattle because more people are killed in a car than killed by guns every year. buy, yes, i think without question. >> have to otherwise the one common denominator in these mass kills is that you end up saying this earn person was deranged. he had something going on up there the other thing that's the common denominator is gun free zones. all the mass killings of the past 20 years only one has happened in an area that was not a gun free zone. maybe we need to rethink the idea in fact colorado shooter. seven shooters. only one that openly posted signs saying you cannot bring a gun. that's the one -- 1.3 miles there was a bigger theater with more seats closer to his home. he didn't select that one.
5:11am
he went to one that was a little further from his house but it was the one place that was posted. i can't tell you that that's why he went to that theater. i don't know. i'm just telling you you look at that and it does make you scratch your head and say maybe these ideas of posting and saying nobody here has a gun but you the criminal maybe that's not a good idea. >> thank you for being here stick around. >> if you make me, brew some coffee i will stay. >> hit you one more thing you just brought up movie theater. >> sure. >> academy awards coming up february 24th. one of the movies that got quite a few nominations was this jiang go unchained. everybody has a reaction to. who has seen it. some love it. some hay it louis farrakhan had this to say about django. >> to me, the movie had a purpose if a black man came
5:12am
out of that movie thinking like django and if white people came out of that movie seeing the slaughter of white people, armed teeth it's preparation for race war. >> preparation for race war. in the movie jamie foxx's character -- i don't want to give it away. quite a bit of violence and ended up shooting white slave owners what do you think of that comment? >> louis farrakhan lives in chicago. this past summer the mayor of chicago rahm immanuel made very clear he didn't want chick-fil-a in his town because it didn't represent his values, chicago values. i'm wondering does louis farrakhan with this comment which i s. i think by any reasonable definition a racist comment, is that the values that mayor rahm immanuel wants in his city? are those chicago values? if not i hope he will be as outspoken and as vocal about these comments by louis farrakhan as he was about chick-fil-a coming to his
5:13am
community to sell chicken nuggets. >> to your point mental health should somebody as demon strappably flamboyantly insane as louis farrakhan have a gun? >> no. >> i'm not going there. >> go ahead. make my day. >> do you think -- one last question, do you think that he had hollywood has some responsibility to tone down the violence in their movies. >> then you get into the whole idea is do they have a responsibility? is that a first amendment issue? i wish they would. but not because the government makes them. i don't want the government involved. because once the government starts what's too violent and what's not. then the government decides what's too religion and what's not. dangerous door to eno i would like to think that hollywood producers would decide and that the audience would decide. ultimately when the audience quits buying tickets to really really hideous movies. they don't get made anymore. >> sometimes you see quite a few actors come out against gun control then you go to their next film and it's full of gun violence, killing
5:14am
people left and right. >> we did he a little thing took things from internet video really funny. had all these actors. showed the actors in their own movie. some of the most violent amazing scenes ever. it shows the hypocrisy. don't do what i do do what i say. >> that's very instruments straght to at lo of us to sit back and look at this and say where is the consistencies? there isn't any. >> the governor is going to stick around for us unbeknownst to him. tv host calling ban the bible at the inauguration. >> the president, following one of most absurd ois tradition also put his hand on this book filled with things he does not believe. >> we're going to get the governor's reaction to that next. >> it's on his face. 31 going on 50? the first official portrait of kate middleton just revealed

need. that's very troubling he was in essence black balled out of the ceremony because his view represents a view that is held by far more people than represent the other view. >> let's go back to the bible talk. bible issue. actually, trying to say there is it separation of church and state and you have a bible sitting up in front of everybody? >> you take them out of every courtroom where people put their hands on a bible and swear to tell the truth? are you requesting to take it out of the supreme court? are you going to take it out of congress? i mean, i think that we are becoming so rapidly a society that is almost ashamed of its really spiritual hair heritage that that's disturbing. we can rewrite our future. you can't rewrite our past. it is what it is. like it or not, this country was founded on the principles of a judeo-christian understanding of the world and the world view. and that's part of who we are. it's like the school in ohio that wanted to take the portrait of jesus down because somebody found it offensive.
5:21am
is he historical figure. we're not going to it acknowledge that dr. martin luther king existed because he was a preacher. and if you listen to his speeches, they weren't speeches. they were sermons. and they were filled with biblical references. is that now offensive as we rewrite history? somebody help me understand that. >> governor, real quick, who is on your show? >> we have general mcchrystal. star parker. we will talk about this ridiculous new television show, you know, my baby's mom mass or whatever it is there. john rich will be with us. we have got a great show lined up tonight. i know that's what you do on saturday nights. >> i actually am going to watch. >> it's what i do. i watch it. >> thanks, governor. >> you will love this next story here. up next, they were supposed to be enemies but they became best friends. the incredible true story of two world war ii vets. and how they went from fighting to friendship. >> then the best prank ever an invisible driver at the

i have a treat. amazing story. imagine you are american bomber pilot flying during the heat of battle world war ii. your plane is badly damaged. you are trying to limp back to the air field. and you look out the window of the airplane, and you see the enemy. >> look out the right window and there parked on right wing is a german bf 109. little sucker looked like he owned me and belonged there. >> [inaudible] you know positively that badly wounded people on board. for me it would have been the same as shooting aparachute. >> see what happened? franz the german fighter pilot decided to shoot down his american enemy. let him go. in fact saluted him out the window.

5:28am
had seen him he would have been executed in those days in germany you could be executed for telling the wrong joke let alone american bomber escape. >> our guy charlie, charlie brown which is great, was he able -- he knew what happened. he knew he was let go. did he tell anybody? >> he came back and he told his superior officers. and he thought my crew deserves medals. they did this brave thing getting this plane across the ocean. and they were shocked. the brass came down and they said we are putting a lid on this story. charlie, you are never to speak of this again. >> was there fear? >> their fear was that if charlie told the story of a good german, other bomber crews might hold their finger off the trigger. oh, maybe this is a good german coming up to fly alongside of us. >> so this is the remarkable part as if there is not enough to be excited about they met eventually these two? >> in 1990 they were reunited the book details how they found each other. charlie found fronds. he searched the world for him.
5:29am
they found him. they reunited and became best trends. >> what was reaction in germany after all of these years? nothing was held against him? >> there was some things held against him. he would get calls from loved ones who had lost a family member in the war. and they would say franz, you traitor, you let the american bomber escape and my son or my daughter or might friend might have been killed because of you. >> they are friends from the early 1990s. listen to this. ironically they both died the same year in 2008? >> they did. they died in 2008, just a couple months apart. an amazing thing happened. fronds had a brother in the war. his brother -- fronds was a flight instructor first. he never wanted to be part of world war ii. he trained his own brother to fly. sent his own brother off to war. his brother was killed. when he found charlie. he said i lost one brother in the war. and i found another. >> they stayed friends, pretty close friends, huh? >> they did. they toured the country dry together doing speeches. telling their story. >> let's make a movie. >> i think it's going to

5:55am
situations around you and you need to start judging your own horrible crappy decisions just like shoty low. we are not allowed to do that because that could result in hurt feelings and politically incorrect. if he had been bent over someone's knee and they would have passed judgment and said listen son you are screwing up your life. guess what? there would be 11 kids who wouldn't be put off at distinct disadvantage because of his disa advantage. these kids end up getting the shortest end of the stick. biggest indicator of apoverty parents are still together. we can't say that because that's a judgment. >> no doubt every measure what you make income, likelihood of going to prison. how long you live. all of these are tied to the marital status of your parents. i disagree on the question of this just being a man matter. men are basically irresponsible and out of control when it comes to women anyway. they are civilized by women who demand commitment from them in exchange for what men want. what's wrong with these women?
5:56am
>> if i were getting a twitter hate as i were for judging someone like shoty low for making poor decisions you can imagine what flow in for judging what kind of poor decisions women make. look at a guy and pattern what's wrong with saying hm let's say you are not wife live-in girlfriend number 6? let me see you have six other kids with six other women? i think i'm going to sit this one out o. you are not the man for me. again, if we tell women to do that, we're judging. you certainly can't that as a man. big problem does stem though from the fact that leftists in this country have tried to convince us that men and women are fundamentally interchangeable not any intrinsic value. how else can one say that same sex marriage is the exact same thing? you look at that and okay. you are not necessarily responsible for fulfilling the role that you were designed to fulfill men as a responsible figure head. and the same thing with women. they are not encouraging women. oxygen isn't encouraging women

you should be answers it now. when you watch some of the officials, and they act like everyone with a gun has a creepy mental patie creepy fetish, or a patient. there are people who give guns to their children so they can go duck hunting. that will be a dark day when you can't get your boy a gun for water foul. and they're about to feel the sting of federal regulation and that's a shame. >> alisyn: one of the things vice-president biden considering, they haven't leaked the proposals yet, but universal background checks and close the so-called gun show loophole where there can be, as we were talking about, transfers from private individual to private individual that go undocumented and they want to
6:07am
kn know, a call for this for a long time, they want to know who has any given gun at any given time and it's interesting that a liberal democrat from california, senator barbara boxer, said she's now suggesting armed guards at schools because the n.r.a. was so roundly criticized when they came out in those days after newtown and now that same proposal might be on the table. hopefully that gives people a feeling of common ground. >> tucker: i would love to have someone explain, we blow by it, universal registration and background checks and look me in the eye and say this is why it's so critical to our country's future that you tell the federal government when you give your son a shotgun to go duck hunting. >> alisyn: they would say if that gun is ends up being used in the commission of a crime, stolen or whatever, they want to know about you. >> tucker: they want to know more about me than i plan to tell them. the federal government wants more power over your life. and that's to compare that
6:08am
against the bill of rights and freedom in the constitution. >> governor mike huckabee was on the show last hour and the possibility, the white house may come up with a planned to have armed guards at school. >> if that is in facts what they come up with, then i'll have to say that maybe they're becoming rational after all. a lot of things that have been talked about are irrational, it's not that people don't want to do something, everybody wants to do something, but it needs to be something that will actually help. >> alisyn: right. that would be nice. if something actually helped. and you have to believe that after all of these meetings, the vice-president has conducted at the white house, that something good, something positive and proactive will come out of it particularly with the video game industry. everybody has talked about how there is a feeling that violent video games, and we know that's a common denominator with some of the deranged shooters, they sit in the basement and practice, rehearse over and over what it feels like to shoot everybody and then shoot somebody. >> you can see that the vice-president is coming back

with something quickly so newtown still in the minds of the country. if the n.r.a. is given an a-rating, a-plus in some ways, 50% of congress and congress controlled by republicans and same people against gun control have always been against gun control, could it sident to say, i'm going to go executive order on this. it's now my moral responsibility, i've got the-- the country is kind of behind me now i've got to do it for moral reasons and 0 do it himself. >> tucker: why act before we know the effect of the laws or orders that the white house is sending down. the truth is it's a highly complicated question. why do people shoot up schools? we don't know the answer and it seems to ban things or people's rights, and video games, i personally despise, think they're creepy, but causing people to murder-- >> i think it causes a

6:19am
it's worth it then automatically puts you in the position of being pro dead kid. which is completely unfair. and the simple reality is that if we had a standard of any law was justified if it saved just one life, then we would ban cars, we would ban plastic buckets, because somewhere between 10 and 40 little kids a year drown in their back yards in plastic buckets. ban ladders evirtually every household appliance and handcuff every american to the the radiators, that would save at least one life, and this approach to the thing is basically a way to give an absolutely unlimited warrant to government action, without having any significant standard for what the result that have government action would be. >> you know, what does take an awful lot of lives is poverty, poverty does kill people and the problem with regulating economic activity is it makes people poorer, we know that. so why is there so little discussion of the cost of government action?
6:20am
>> right, i mean, your a hitting on the basic point, all regulation has to have some kind of cost benefit analysis, right? we know we would save thousands of lives if we made the speed limit 5 miles per hour. but at the same time, the loss to the economy of making the speed limit 5 miles an hour would make a lot of people poorer. and it's just not worth it. it's also deep infringement of our freedom, and so, the problem with this standard, if it saves just one life, it's worth it, it means if it's excluding all over considerations, both economic as well as, you know, having to do with the bill of rights and our personal liberties. >> hey, i want you to weigh in on this, the crime rate, murder rate in this country is down by quite a bit as a matter of fact, over the last 20 years we've doubled the number of guns in our homes. can you make a case they're related? >> i think of course you can. i think that the -- i don't
